    Pros

    - Opportunity to become an 'expert-generalist' by exploring multiple industries and functions, utilizing and building on the foundation laid in the MBA experience
    - Exit opportunities abound and company is supportive of future career path, inside and outside of the Company
    - Talented peers who provide professional comradery and personal friendships, which accelerate the learnings and opportunities that Bain provides

    Cons

    - Steep learning curve, you are always challenged are always working with very bright, smart, savvy people. This means you might not always be the smartest person in the room.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the bright, talented folks you do - they are inspiring to work with and make it a joy and a privilege to work here.

    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredibly collaborative (both internally and with clients); accelerated development; a meritocracy that at the same time strives to do its best to not leave people behind; people passionate about incredible things outside of work and a general culture that people find themselves gravitating to; flat operating structure (limited boundaries and frequent interaction between junior staff and senior partners)

    Cons

    It's consulting at a top strategy consulting firm... the hours can be long and, although I believe Bain does a better job than others at managing travel requirements, there are still nights required on the road

    Advice to Management

    Bain is truly an incredible place to work. But as we continue to grow astronomically, please be careful to not lose the great things that make the firm what it is.

    Pros

    Incredible culture of professional development and constant learning. Challenging problems, talented teams, and a culture where work-life balance is as important as the result.

    Cons

    As with any management consulting, limited control of case/client/team can make for a variable experience.
